The Icelandic Canadian Frón is offering a series of Icelandic movie screenings online via Zoom that can be watched in the comfort of your own home!
The first screening on February 10, 2021 was of the acclaimed Icelandic movie Rams (2015) written and directed by Grímur Hákonarson.
Our next movie screening is Agnes Joy a movie by Silja Hauksdóttir.
Agnes Joy follows the middle-aged Rannveig (Katla Margrét Þorgeirsdóttir), who is bored by her suburban life. When a well-known actor moves in next door, both Rannveig and her rebellious daughter Agnes (Donna Cruz) become interested in him. The film also features performances from Þorsteinn Bachmann, who plays Rannveig’s husband, and rapper Kristinn Óli Haraldsson (known as Króli).
Morgunblaðið gave this movie 41/2 stars and said in a review, “Agnes Joy is a very entertaining film that handles the topics of growing up, regret and family relationships in a deep, beautiful and hysterically funny way.”
